Annual Fit-a-Thon benefits Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation

The Fessenden Center is hosting the 3rd Annual Fit-a-Thon fundraiser on Saturday, October 26, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. in Buxton. All proceeds from the event will benefit the Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation.

A minimum cash donation of $15 provides participants access to an entire day filled with dynamic group exercise classes, fabulous raffle prizes, and delicious healthy foods. Participants can stay and sweat all day or come and go as they please. Classes will be taught by Hatteras Island’s top fitness instructors and include strength training, yoga, Tai Chi, senior fitness, POUND, pilates, step aerobics, belly dancing, and more!

Since 2017, the Fit-a-Thon fundraiser has raised over $3,000 for the Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation (HICF). The all-volunteer non-profit organization provides support for cancer patients and their families who live on Hatteras Island. HICF raises funds to help patients pay for medical costs not reimbursed by insurance and to pay for travel expenses for themselves and caregivers to medical centers for cancer treatment. To date, the Hatteras Island Cancer Foundation has assisted over 184 islanders with cancer and their families.
